Fave 5


My kids and I got a new cell phones and a new cell plan. This is my first experience with texting. I find I am pretty slow at it. But my kids really like it. It's really cute they will text me throughout the day and just say hi and stuff. They like to have full conversations by text, which so far drives me crazy. I take way too long to type my message. They will send me 3 or 4 messages in the time it takes me to type up my first reply.
The first day I tried texting I kept texting my husband too. I had him on my "Fave 5" so it was easy to pull him up to send him a message. I texted him a few times and he didn't reply back. I just figured he was busy since he was at work. I texted him asking him where my heartburn medication was. He didn't get back to me, but I found my medicine so I was alright. The next day I came to work and heard about a bunch of layoffs. I was upset that friends had lost jobs, but at the same time relieved that I still had one. So I texted my husband to tell him about it. A few minutes later he texted me back consoling me about the layoffs. A little later I texted him and asked him what my phone number was. He texted me back with it. I was starting to think I was getting good at this texting thing and thinking it was very convenient. Later that day I called him on the phone. I didn't get him; I got a very nice young lady named Heather instead. I was pretty confused for a little bit, until I realized I had entered her number into my phone instead of my husband's. So she was in my "Fave 5" and not my husband. A few minutes later I realized that I had been texting that lady for days! I was pretty embarrassed but did have a good laugh about it.
I can only make changes to my "Fave 5 once a month. So for now "Heather" is one of my "faves", although I won't harass the poor lady anymore or she might think I am a stocker. I'm just very glad I didn't text my husband a secret little sexy note meant only for my husband.

great story! kindof like the one when I told Miss P the wrong cell # when she was calling her dad and ended up calling some random grandma and they both talked to each other- Miss P thinking it was her dad and the grandma thinking it was a grandchild of hers!
I am still not a pro at texting either, one day maybe!

erika said...

Hey I have a question for you ? I don't see us on your list of blogs?

LOL abt the lady in your F5
I used to have trouble with texting in the word mode, but now that I found out the trick to it, I'm better at it. I found I use it more and more now. I even send pics that way too. Text on girl friend

Erika, Your blog is on my list. It just shows up as "Blogger log in to read". Probably because of your security settings.

Sondra said...

You poor girl! That is almost as bad as going around town with your daughter's underwear stuck to the back of your coat! What a nice lady Heather is!

Kris said...

Katrina, that is pretty funny!

Katrina said...

Sondra, I had forgotten about that! The underwear incident was definitely the more embarrassing of the two. But probably just as funny after I had gotten over the horror of embarrassment.

I bet Heather got a kick out of you asking where the heartburn meds were kept!!!
Texting definitely takes some getting used to but I really do enjoy it.
I'm curious...you had your daughters undies stuck to your back once? Did anyone see? How utterly HILARIOUS!

Val said...

What a funny story! I'm glad the lady was nice! I haven't figured out texting yet... my hubby and I don't use it, but maybe when my kids get a little older they can teach me how! I'm glad you still have a job too...scary times!

That is a hilarious story. Also that is cool that you got t-mobile because I have t-mobile too. Now we can get free mobile to mobile. What phone did you get? Does it have UMA capability?

Trent

Katrina said...

Trent, I have a Sony Erickson TM506. It's black and green. I like the look of it. I have no idea if it is UMA Capable. I don't really know what that is.

I'll post my cell # on the family site so we can call each other for no minutes! Cool. I love you guys.

This was a GREAT laugh! I'm gonna think of you next time I text my honey... It would've been so funny if you had said something "private"! :)
